  Let me preface this by saying this is my first venture into XCode, the new
mac IDE. Anyway, it appears that the reason I was getting that crash, was
that the project I was building was automatically linking to the Mac OS X
(10.3.2/Panther)-provided version of libcurl (7.10.2) in /usr/lib.
Pre-panther, we were using Project Builder(Old Mac IDE) to embed a specific
version of libcurl into the final Mac executable. The steps to do this
under XCode are somewhat different.

  Well, to make a long afternoon of tweaking XCode project settings short, I
now have the project linking the latest libcurl (7.11.0). My crash has
disappeared...Yea! Sorry for the false crash alarm.
